In this campaign season we can at least thank the candidates, political parties, and special interest groups for using the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to send thousands of political flyers across the state and nation to try to sway voters. This is good – the USPS needs the work!
One local state legislative candidate and his support groups have graced my mailbox and/or doorknob with eight flyers so far!
I have to admit that some of the flyers from the candidates and political groups are pretty good, so I have scanned a few of them to share as a slideshow (below). This election season we are seeing more tri-fold flyers and the goal is to get you to open it and read the propaganda. I did not scan the inside of the flyers.
Enjoy the show….

Today we take a moment to remember September 11, 2001. It seems just yesterday that our country was attacked – but it has been 11 years.
On that day I remember staring at the television in shock. When the second plane hit the World Trade Center, I hoped and prayed that it was a replay of the first plane hitting it. It wasn’t. I hoped like many folks that the whole thing was just a dream. It wasn’t.
We have so much as a Nation to be thankful – we should especially be thankful for those who have fought and died so that we may have freedom and liberty. My prayers go out to those protecting us today.
Take a few minutes and listen to Ray Charles singing, “America the Beautiful” and enjoy this great day!
All my best,
With compassion, we remember those who have given their lives in defense of our country. We will never forget you. We will always honor you and your sacrifice.
Faithful readers – pardon me while I give my personal commentary about a local issue…
When the local Great Falls (Montana) school levy was defeated, I wrote a commentary about it and figured that would be about all I’d have to say about it. I had written a column before that expressing my support for the levy request, which would cost me a little more than $15.71 per year.
The levy was defeated and life goes on…
But then I happened to read an advertisement in the local newspaper from a group called Citizens Against Higher Taxes (CAHT). In my opinion they kind of had the “spike the ball” attitude toward those who supported the levy. So I must offer my commentary about this advertisement:
It seems the group purchased some advertisements called “An Open letter to the GFPS Administration, Board of Trustees and Teachers Union” in which they claim the school district “is implementing a new bullying program and is now acting like the bully.” They contend “Anyone who opposes their viewpoint is a target of retaliation.” They also say they “expect a new attitude from the Board of Trustees and top administrators…” Continue reading
A video to start your week off…enjoy the Sexy Sax Man (Careless Whisper Saxophone Prank!!) directors cut:
Yesterday Congressman Denny Rehberg introduced the Montana Land Sovereignty Act in the U.S. House. The bill “requires congressional approval before the White House or the Department of Interior (DOI) can designate any new National Monuments or “Wild Lands” in Montana.”
I think that’s a good thing. Continue reading
